    Children find a man s body hanging from a tree in a local beauty spot It seems like a simple and tragic case of suicide but it turns out to be far from simple when the man s lover is also found dead, apparently murdered at home At first it seems like a murder followed by suicide perhaps sparked by sexual jealousy but neither Banks nor DI Annie Cabbot are convinced that this is the whole story and some information from the murdered man s mother leads Banks to think there could be wide ranging ramifications to the case.This is a frightening and convoluted story involving smoke and mirrors and people who are definitely not what they seem to be It also involves a personal crisis for Banks where once again his work has and adverse effect on his private life.This is book was well up to the high standard set by most of the rest of the series and I found it a gripping read with plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing If you like your police procedurals with plenty of psychological depth and interesting and well drawn characters then this could be the series for you.

    I have only recently discovered Peter Robinson and his wonderful Inspector Banks novels They are well planned and realistic I love the flow and his ability to keep you guessing right to the last chapter.Being new to this writer I have now decided to acquire all of them and to read them in the order in which they were written.This because I identified his stories to be a refreshing insight into social history over the past few years, bringing to my attention how much we have progressed especially with respect to communications and technology In the earlier novels, the police had to return to the car, find a phone box or ask to use a persons landline They could find themselves in tricky situations with no means of summoning help There is also a similar situation in the earlier days of computers, when very few officers were computer literate and saw it as a means of progression by making themselves indispensable.Life is now so much easier for our police forces and indeed all of us.It does not matter which of Peter Robinson s books you buy, you will get a good story, full of intrigue and thrills Go ahead, get hooked like me Lois Rimmer JP BSc.

    I enjoyed this book at the beginning but felt it lost its way a bit A body is found in the woods by some school boys and when police visit his partner with the news he is also dead Was it a murder and suicide Banks and Annie Cabot investigate even though they are soon told by their boss to leave it When it becomes clear MI5 and MI6 are involved things soon turn nasty A bit too long for me with a disappointing ending.

    It took ages to plough through this book It was a crass storyline to complement the obscure music titles I usually really enjoy Mr Robinson s books but after this offering I shall give them a miss for a while.

    I love the DCI Banks series and hope that Peter Robinson writes many , it s easy to identify with Inspector banks as you grow with him across 24 years of police service I have read them all 24 books to date and will be reading them all again.

    Sculduggery abounds in this novel A murder and suicide seem simple but perhaps they are not Alan Banks delves into the darkness surrounding MI6 while Annie Cabbot goes after the local gangs following the stabbing of a young boy As always Peter Robinson is very readable but perhaps this particular story is a little far fetched BUT then perhaps not

    I was impressed by the in depth knowledge research over such a wide range of performances and artistes Familiarity with eating and drinking establishments and their products was instructive but perhaps not to be recommended for the health conscious amongst us.So in all, a gripping, hard to put down first experience and it will not be the last

    A fairly obvious murder suicide has the team considering it s a little too obvious, and they start to dig deeper The secret service are involved, which makes Banks s hackles rise, and he is thwarted at every turn Coupled with this his romance with Sophia fails, and he is heartbroken Rather too much description of his taste in music with all the various information on the tracks etc Felt that took up too much of the story
